      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    I asked for the boom length not the sail dimensions in my former life as an Ullman rep... Hey Snap, good to hear your still around and doing well in SD wot you doing now?
  2. Rocket 22

    It's 12" shorter on the boom for better sheeting control, but has something like 7 sq. ft more sail up top which has shown an enormous improvement in light air. Although it was very fast in light air before! The square head really depowers well. Still like to see those pictures of the Rocket Intergalactics you have! sure you will have to wait till I get back to NZ in Feb, I will post the pictures then

    yup, thats the old girl, the stick has now been changed to the std Rocket 22 stick as the original Martin sticks which were used on the prototype (SLUT) have been snapped, the Ullman rep was asking the North rep for the our square top sail dimentions, must have been for you, Be interesting to see how the sails differ, thought you said that your new main had more square footage? We thought about a dacron main for the same reasons you did, but ended up with a black sail. I still cant belive how much of an improvement to the boat handing that sail made and we still use the stock rudder.

    I have to say the best change we made was going with the North square top main. By reducing the main foot by approximally 11" and adding a square head we improved handling and performance without adding sail area. The boat tackes faster and the main depowers so much easer. We also got a woomper light weight asso from Lidguards in NZ, not sure if the additional handicap is worth that one but in the light with the huge asso soaking the boat to the mark is funny with Vipers reaching hard and crossing your transom further back each time. Had a lot of fun with the old girl, Rocket #1 Seattle Washington. I will have a look, I think I have a couple of pictures from the Rocket Intergalatics held in Seattle during the Noods regatta, about the first and last time we will see I think seven rocket 22's on the water together. If I find them I will post them.

    get to the K&K in Greenlake just north of Seattle for kick off and I am sure you will get an education very quickly!

    Hi 'Barnone' I believe Bainbridge Island, Puget Sound. There is only one thing left to do:, 'A 2011 version' ok Kev, what changes would you recommend in the 2011 version, And if the mighty All Blacks play the way they did last weekend...the French are in trouble! But I have heard and sad to say seen it all before, don't forget 1999 or 2007, now is the time to right those wrongs, I think Richies boys will hit them hard and then up the antie in the second half this go around! Go the All Blacks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. Dibley K250 Carbon

    yep I think it is the one!
